Dark Horse Teams with Naughty Dog for The Art of Uncharted Trilogy


Naughty Dog knows about crafting games rife with sterling narrative, complex characters and meticulous gameplay. Dark Horse also knows about sterling narrative, complex characters and illustrating meticulous gameplay. The overlap of talents and abilities make the two teaming up for The Art of the Uncharted Trilogy make perfect sense. In April 2015, fans will get to see the fruits of those labors.

Fans of the series and art in general will find many hidden treasures in this book.”
